First off, I wanted to post that I’ve not posted for a while because I’ve been working on the site design, and doing political work. This week I’m in Tucson, Arizona for the annual IFGE conference. I’ll be posting youtube videos and pictures from the conference.
So far I’m pretty excited about being here, being with like minded people and I look forward to lots of inspiring motivational discussions tomorrow. I’ll try and post video within a few hours of the Diversity luncheon.
